I love you.
I can’t believe how lucky we are to have each other. Our lives are changing so quickly and every single tiny little moment is important. I remember the other day when we were in your office, you sat down at your desk and me leaning against the radiator, and you told me you were so much more excited about us now than ever before. You told me we were like Chandler and Monica, how we’re no longer in the ‘new’ phase of our relationship, but how much more we have to look forward to. How you loved the first part of our journey, but how happy you are now with what we have.
I have to pinch myself when I look back at our lives together. It’s so surreal. You were my first everything. First time I went abroad with my partner’s family. First holiday abroad with my partner! First time I flew in a plane next to the person I loved. First person I took for a ride when I passed my driving test. First person I would tell a secret to, or exciting news, or something boring but you’d be the first to know. We travelled to Singapore together and interviewed Tom Hanks and we flew to Paris and interviewed Ashton Kutcher… then we got to meet Camila Cabello in London and sat on a bed with her. We moved house 4 times and bought a house together. We decorated the place together and I was so happy I ended up with someone who allowed me to put pink everywhere! You would listen to me moan about unimportant things when I just needed to vent and you take everything I say seriously, and give me the best advice. I love that you’re older than me, wiser than me. I love how confident you are, and how much confidence you have in me. I love how much fun we have together, and I love how boring things are hilarious when you are around! Like when we go to Asda or Aldi, and we’re bent over laughing about nothing.
I love how we have our own language, how we make up words and know what they mean even if we haven’t explained them. I love our in-jokes, our feeling of being a perfect team. I love how when we meet new people they always remark about how well we treat one another, but we’re not even trying, we’re just being us.
I love how every morning is fun. Like this morning when you said “Tell me about the snake” because I’d had a nightmare and asked you to coodle me close all night. I love waking up every day with you and going to bed with you. I love how I have a sense of adventure, but I couldn’t make it happen without you. I love how you compliment me on my skills, I love how we never take each other for granted. I love how much we appreciate one another.
I just love you.
You’re my best friend and the most amazing wife anyone could ever wish for. I am so so so so so lucky you are mine. I’ll be with you always. Now until the afters. xxxx
